How to disable WordPress Pingbacks & Trackbacks, One of the old Feature & Core Functionality of WordPress, Optimum Performance Tip

Let’s Know, What is really Pingback is?

A pingback is a type of comment that’s created when you link to another blog post where pingbacks are enabled. The best way to think about pingbacks is as remote comments:


  1. Person A posts something on his blog.
  2. Person B posts on her own blog, linking to Person A’s post. This automatically sends a pingback to Person A when both have pingback enabled blogs.
  3. Person A’s blog receives the pingback, then automatically goes to Person B’s post to confirm that the pingback did, in fact, originate there.

Let’s Know, What is really Trackback is?

Trackbacks are a way to notify legacy blog systems that you’ve linked to them. If you link other WordPress blogs they’ll be notified automatically using pingbacks, no other action necessary.

Think of trackbacks as the equivalent of acknowledgements and references at the end of an academic paper or chapter in a text book.

To send a trackback, add the trackback URI from the other blog post to the Send Trackbacks module in your blog post before you publish it. A trackback URI from a WordPress blog will end with /trackback/.
